First Aid

Broome Community College is committed to the safety of students, faculty and staff. As part of that goal, the Student Health Services and Office of Public Safety and Security Departments have coordinated their efforts to implement an effective First Aid/CPR/AED Program. Student Health Services provides leadership and technical support for the program. They also provide the equipment and program oversight. The Office of Public Safety and Security provides training and performs administrative functions. It has established BCC as an Emergency Care Training Center for the National Safety Council  Last but not least, with the help of staff certified by in-house training and existing staff certified in First Aid/CPR/AED by other agencies, volunteers across the campus are ready to respond.

Additional staff who wish to become part of our team or simply become certified can participate in the ongoing First Aid/CPR & AED classes offered by the Office of Public Safety and Security. For information on course content contact the Director of Safety at 778-5379.

All programs are available to Faculty and Staff at no cost.
